Plan a Holly Jolly Christmas and New Year in Gulf Shores

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a lounge chair and a sandy beach!

Enjoy a white-sand holiday season with a coastal Christmas in Gulf Shores. Whether you visit in the days leading up to Santa’s main event, decide to partake in a hassle-free holiday during St. Nick’s big day, or toast in the New Year with beach views, we invite you to relax and recharge with those who mean the most.
